There's nothing more beautiful than the innocence of a child, unless that child is covered in pie filling. Out-beauty pie-gobbling youth with the help of today's Groupon: for $45, you get $100 worth of salon and spa services at Elite Salon and Day Spa.
The seasoned staff of beautifiers at Elite Salon and Day Spa renews leases on hair, nails, and skin through a variety of posh services. Tress-relieving treatments, such as a women's haircut ($35) that includes a scalp and shoulder massage, as well as eco-friendly styling products from brands such as Pureology, earned the studio a top-five spot on KREM's 2010 Z Best of Spokane list for hair salons. Doing their best middle-management impersonations, expert aestheticians smoothly terminate lagging body hair with professional waxings ranging from nose to full leg ($5–$55). Organic skin treatments abound in a menu of spa services that includes the radiant European facial ($65) and the exfoliating manual dermabrasion ($60). Toes and fingers beg for elite pedicures ($40) and elite manicures ($33)—entailing exfoliation, mud mask, paraffin dip, massage, and polish—and shoulders tired from expressing ambivalence can commit to a balancing therapy massage ($65).
The studio's pale yellow walls, wooden floors, and tasteful flora form an ecosystem in which follicles, cuticles, and pores exist in radiant harmony despite the rampant cutting and unregulated buffing around them. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
